Who We Are


Cathy Allardyce, Owner & Certified Instructor

The restaurant industry is in my blood.  My Mom will fondly remind me of my first restaurant at age seven: a giant cardboard box with a "drive thru" cut out and a little kitchen inside.  I provided my parents, brother, and every doll I owned with top quality plastic hot dogs and fried eggs until the box fell apart around me.

I also spent moments in childhood "helping" my Dad prepare his maniquins and supplies during his tenure as a CPR instructor.  Now it's my turn.

With over 18 years of operations and training experience at nationally recognized Canadian restaurant brands, and fully certified as a instructor for BASICS.fst® & ADVANCED.fst®, Standard & Emergency First Aid, and Heartsaver® CPR/AED programs, it's time to share my experiences and passion with others in a new way. ELCO Hospitality is here.

Focused on accessible and relevant training in the hospitality and foodservice sector, I welcome the opportunity to work with you to reach your organization's goals in food safety and first aid skills.
